NFS vs pserver: update problem

cvs-1.11.1p1  on the Solaris platform.

A user tried to update a directory as follows (via pserver):

% cvs up  ./

and gets a message:
? .depend
cvs-1.11.1p1 server: Updating ./
cvs-1.11.1p1 server: .//Makefile is no longer in the repository

All the files are removed from that directory.

% ls

When the user tried this (via pserver):
% cvs up -l
? .depend
cvs-1.11.1p1 server: Updating .
U Makefile

All the files are updated as expected

% ls
CVS    Makefile

However, when this command was tried via a NFS update, the files were
not removed from the directory:

% cvs up ./

% ls
CVS    Makefile

Any idea why this is happening via pserver and not via NFS.
